Mango Lassi or Mango Smoothie is what I want for you to try sooner or later this year! When I was in India, Mango lassi was the drink I go for be it, Winter or Summer. Delicious, soothing, healthy, and a refreshing drink.
Before sharing the recipe for this amazing smoothie, you must be wondering where was I and how come no new recipes were posted for more than a month. I make it a point to go on a vacation every year and this mostly happens in the Summer, this year though I had to take it earlier.
I spent few days in Georgia with my mother in law where the weather was just awesome. My husband and I decided to have some us time and stayed in The Hilton for some pampering. We then flew to my home country the beautiful United Arab Emirates.
We stayed in UAE for few days. I’m glad the weather was pleasant and we had some rain too. Shopping was a must and you can imagine how eager I was to bring back countless spices and sweet treats.
But here I am blogging again, cooking, and sharing new recipes with my lovely readers whom I missed sooooooo much!
I believe, it is healthy to take at least three weeks off from your laptop and e-mail. It will refresh you and will fuel you with more energy and optimism, it is a way to give your body and brain the break needed, and when you start working again, you will feel much better and happier.
To refresh your body, I got this Mango Lassi or mango smoothie for you, it is a thick smoothie and there is only one thing to keep in mind while making it and it is the freshness of the mango. You can use frozen or fresh mango to enjoy this smoothie, but first taste the mango and make sure it is not sour.
Sour tasting mango can make this drink less enjoyable since you are already using another sour ingredient which is yogurt. It is important to use ripe and sweet mango for this mango lassi recipe.
